The grand premiere was attended by director Raghava Lawrence, producers Shabinaa Khan and Tusshar Kapoor. Transgender rights activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi also joined Laxmii‘s team. Akshay, for the event, opted for an all-black outfit. Kiara gave major boho vibes in a black and white polka dot saree. She teamed it up with a colourful blouse and waistbelt.

I can’t wait for you to sit with your family and friends at the comfort of your homes while watching #LAXMII ! see you at the movies 9th November on”
